A paradise for playing this sport and for relaxing the mind, getting lost in the expanses of the greenery. The course covers an area of 6520 meters and was designed by the architects David Mezzacane, president of the Italian Association of Golf Course Architects, and Vincenzo Mazzacane.

The 6 par 4 holes have been created inside a prickly pear plantation. The natural local iblee-limestone hills whiten the path in the holes two, three and four.
